Full leather, 3 vol. set: 429+383+490p., gold stamped spines, 5 raised bands, red leather spine label gold stamped, solid copies, contemporary binding, marbled edges, "2nd edition corrected," 13.5 x 22 cm. SECOND EDITION SUBTITLE: cont.: "And a Small Part of Chinese Tartary. Together With a Relation of the Voyage Undertaken on the occasion by His Majesty's Ship the Lion, and the Ship Hindostan, in the East India Company's Service, to the Yellow Sea, and gulf of Peking; as Well as of Their Return to Europe; With Notices of the Several Places Where they Stopped in Their Way Out and Home; being the Islands of Madeira, Tenerife, and St. Jago; the Port of Rio de Janeiro in South America; the Islands of St. Helena, Tristan d'Acunha, and Amsterdam [Island]; the Coasts of Java, and Sumatra, the Nanka Isles, Pulo-Condore, and Cochin-China. Taken Chiefly from the Papers of His Excellency The Earl of Macartney, Knight of the Bath, His Majesty's Embassador [sic] Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Emperor of China; Sir Erasmus Gower, Commander of the Expedition and of other Gentlemen in the Several Departments of the Embassy." *** THE OFFICIAL RECORD: The official account of Earl McCartney's informative but unsuccessful mission to establish formal diplomatic and commercial relations with China. Staunton accompanied the Embassy as Secretary & compiled his book chiefly from the papers of the Ambassador & his fellow envoys. A fascinating true history of the expedition, useful primary source. *** By and large, the best single English language item done on China in the 18th century ! George Staunton [1737-1801] was a British diplomat, in 1774 Dr. Samuel Johnson met Staunton and they became life-long friends. Although the official mission to China failed, a wealth of precious information was collected and published in this first comprehensive official account. During this period of time, Great Britain was anxious to establish formal diplomatic relations with China and open usual trade relations. The unwilling Chinese resisted all Western foreign intervention in China. In the end Stanton's gifts and arguments were rejected by the Emperor. *** THE SECOND EDITION: This being the "Second Edition, Correct" edition of 1798. Uniformly bound in three full calf volumes, with 5 raised spine bands, gold stamped spine decorations, two red leather labels with gold stamping one the spines, [vol.1 lacking volume number label], else complete. * CONDITION: The set is solidly bound, with minimal wear to the edges. Volume 3 has mis-numbered pages 32 & 212. Also in vol. 3 there is some feint and minor stain to the edges of six locations, this is by and large in the margins, and does not affect much text. We are being overly critical, some of this is almost unnoticeable. Else the paper is very clean, no foxing or other issues. All hinges intact, there is a 3 cm. small split to the lower spine front edge of vol. 3, which has been reinforced, it is not solid and firm. There are a few old minor stains to the covers. By and large a handsome set, in period full leather bindings. The set has discreet armorial book plates. Please see scans posted to our website. **** There is bibliographical evidence that this set came with two maps a chart, but this copy has no list of maps nor any hint of maps being removed. This work was clearly bound with out any maps or charts at all. **** BIBLIOGRAPHY: E. Cox: A REFERENCE GULIDE TO THE LITERATURE OF TRAVEL, P.334-345. * Lust 545. * H. H. H.

        MEXICO - VERACRUZ: PLANO DEL PUERTO DE VERACRUZ EN LA COSTA OCIDENTAL DEL SENO MEXICANO. POR DN. BERNARDO DE ORTA, CAPITAN DE NAVIO GRADUADO DE LA RL. ARMADA Y DE DICHO PUERTO. AÑO DE 1798.

      Copper engraving (Overall pleasant appearance, however, there are 2 small filled holes, 1 at centerfold in blank space in upper neatline and 1 in title in upper right just touching the ‘T’ in ‘PUERTO’, some minor creasing and a few very small light stains, 3 corners with restoration well outside of printed area, strong engraving impression), 50 x 64 cm (20 x 25 inches). - Madrid: Dirección de Hidrografía, 1798. A rare separately issued sea chart of Veracruz, historically Mexico’s main gateway to the Atlantic and Europe, the first printed scientific hydrographic survey of the harbour, by Captain Bernardo de Orta. - This exceedingly attractive celestial composition is packed with magnificent astronomical details and exciting allegory, and is one of the most beloved celestial works of the German Baroque era. Engraved by the master Melchior Rein, is it dominated by two large celestial hemispheres (Northern and Southern) taken from the work of the great Polish astronomer Johannes Hevelius (I611-87), as recently revised by the English polymath Sir Edmund Halley (1656 - 1742). In the surroundings, set aloft in a sea of clouds under a pageant of allegorical figures, is a series of seven astronomical diagrams. Starting from the bottom and working from left to right, is a diagram of the monthly orbit of the moon, following by images of the planetary systems as conceived by Tycho Brahe, Copernicus and Ptolemy; and then finally a diagram of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. The image in the upper left depicts the Universe’s creation as proscribed by Genesis; while the diagram in the upper right depicts the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon. The map was created by Matthäus Seutter (1678 - 1757), one of the leading German cartographers of the 18th Century. The son of a goldsmith, Seutter apprenticed under Johann-Baptist Homann (1663 - 1724) of Nuremberg, the founder of Continental Europe’s most successful map enterprise. Early in the 18th Century, Seutter went out on his own, opening his own cartography establishment in Augsburg. While he struggled initially, his Baroque style of cartography, with strong engraving and bold original colours, echoed the tastes in fine art sand architecture of the time, and he eventually won a following. By the time he printed the present celestial chart, he had risen to forefront of map publishing in Europe, a status confirmed in 1732 by his appointment to Imperial cartographer to the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI. After Seutter’s death in 1757, his work was continued by Johann Michel Probst and Tobias Conrad Lotter. The present celestial chart appeared within Seutter’s Atlas Novus Sive Tabulae Geographicae (Augsburg, circa 1730), although examples were also issued individually. The full original hand colour of the present example is especially fine. References: Kanas, Star Maps: History, Artistry and Cartography, no. 6.3.4.5; Warner, The Sky Explored, p. 245.

        A voyage of discovery to the North Pacific Ocean, and round the world; in which the coast of north-west America has been carefully examined and accurately surveyed. principally with a view to ascertain the existence of any navigable communication between the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans; and performed in the years 1790, 1791, 1792, 1794, and 1795, in the Discovery Sloop of War, and Armed Tender Chatham, under the command of Captain George Vancouver.

      London Robinson and Edwards 1798 - First edition. 4 volumes comprising 3 volumes 4to text, 1 volume atlas folio, half-titles to volumes I and III, 34 engraved plates and maps (17 engraved views printed on large paper and one map in text volumes, atlas with 10 maps and 6 coastal profiles, all folding); text volumes contemporary tree calf gilt, black and red morocco labels, nautical motifs to spines, atlas modern half calf to match, neat repairs to extremities, a fine set. First edition of one of the most difficult geographical surveys ever undertaken. Vancouver's voyage ranks among the most important in exploration literature. George Vancouver (1757-1798) had gained valuable experience on Cook's second and third voyages. He sailed by way of the Cape of Good Hope to Australia, where he discovered King George's sound and Cape Hood, then to New Zealand, Hawaii, and the northwest coast of America. In three seasons' work Vancouver surveyed the coast of California, visited San Francisco and San Diego and other Spanish settlements in Alta California investigated the Strait of Juan de Fuca, discovered the Strait of Georgia, circumnavigated Vancouver Island, and disproved the existence of any passage between the Pacific and Hudson Bay. "Of all the men who served under Cook, Vancouver was the only one whose work as a hydrographic surveyor placed him in the same class as his mentor. The care Vancouver took with the health of his crew during this voyage also mirrored Cook's achievements Almost all the names given by Vancouver on the north-west coast of America have survived" (ODNB). Vancouver retired to Surrey in 1795 to revise his journal for publication; the work was uncompleted on his death in 1798, and was completed by his brother John.

        Vista de la Ciudad de Santiago de Chile desde la falda del Cerro de Santo Domingo

      Copper engraved view of Santiago de Chile, by Brambila, ca. 1798. One of the most influent views of Chili´s Capital city, engraved by Brambila "Brambila lo delineó y gravó". Brambila (1763 - 1832) was an Italian artist of considerably ability; in 1789 he joined Alejandro Malaspina's scientific expedition as the official draughtsman. The crew included scientist, professional sailors and other artists. The position allowed him to visit Argentina & Chile -travelling by foot on occasions-, as well as Guam, Macau, the Philippines, amongst others. So celebrated were his designs made during the voyage, that in 1798, upon his return to Madrid, he was appointed "Pintor de Cámara". Malaspina´s voyage came in a difficult time for Spain; as a result the monumental work that had been planned never came to light. After five years at sea Malaspina returned home in 1794 and found the political situation of Spain not to his liking: his liberal tendencies led to his imprisonment in 1796 and exile after his release in 1802. His seven-volume account of his expedition was suppressed and remained unpublished until the late 19th century.

        A Letter Of Protest Concerning A Robert Morris Unfulfilled Promissory Note; Morris Was Already In Debtor's Prison When This Was Filed

      DS. 1pg. 8" x 13". July 21, 1798. Philadelphia. A letter of protest signed "Peter Lohra", protesting the bad promissory note written by John Nicholson to Robert Morris on July 17, 1795. The partly printed document states to condition of the bounced note at the top, then states "Be it known, That on the Day of the Date hereof, I, Peter Lohra, Notary Public for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, by lawful authority duly Commissioned and Sworn, residing in the City of Philadelphia, in the said Commonwealth, at the Request of Mr. Walter Smith went to the Compting House of John Nicholson drawer of the original promissory note whereof the above is a true copy in order to demand payment but found the same shut up and no person there to answer or pay the said note wherefore I left notice of the nonpayment thereof at the Compting House of Robert Morris the indorser [sic] Whereupon I, the said Notary, at the Request aforesaid, Have and Do hereby solemnly Protest against the Drawer of the said Promissory Note, and all others concerned, for all Exchange, re-Exchange, Costs, Damages, and Interest suffered and to be suffered for want of Payment thereof. Thus Done and Protested at Philadelphia aforesaid, the twenty-first Day of July 1798. In Testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my Hand, and affixed my Notarial Seal, the Day and Year abovewritten." At the top of the document is a handwritten copy of the bad promissory note, dated July 18, 1795 and signed by Nicholson and Morris; it states "Three years after date I promise to pay Robt Morris Esqr or order Five thousand Dollars for value received." Obviously, the 1795 promissory note was never paid, and Morris was already in debtors prison by the time this letter of protest was filed. The document has an embossed seal in the lower left corner and was folded three times. The condition is fine.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("C. Stolberg").

      Tremsbüttel, 21. VII. 1798. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Sie haben mir, Liebster Freund, unterm 16. v. M. einen kleinen Wechsel [.] gesendet der sofort ausbezahlt worden ist. Sie waren diese Summe an unseren alten Abraham Sibylletta schuldig und ich habe sie diesem sofort überwiesen. Hier ist die original Quittung die ich Ihnen zusende. Der Secunda Wechsel ist gleichfalls in Ihrem Briefe an meinen Freund vom 6. d. gekommen, den ich sogleich mit der Bemerkung daß die Prima berichtiget sei an Lawä[t]z übermacht habe. Hiemit wär also diese kleine Geschichte beendiget. Haben Sie sonst Aufträge so bitte ich Sie sehr dringend sie mir immer anzuvertrauen, sie sollen gewiß mit dem Eifer der Freundschaft ausgerichtet werden [.]". - Bei dem erwähnten Lawä[t]z wird es sich um einen der vier Brüder Lawätz - Christian Otto (1745-1801), Heinrich Wilhelm (1748-1825), Johann Daniel (1750-1826) oder Ferdinand Otto Volrath (1751-1840) - gehandelt haben; letzterer, Justizrat Ferdinand Otto Vollrath Lawätz, war von 1774 bis 96 Besitzer des adeligen Gutes Bramstedt gewesen, das von 1751 bis 56 im Eigentum von Christians Stolbergs gleichnamigem Vater Graf Christian Günther zu Stolberg (1714-1765) gestanden war. Als musterhaftes Beispiel späterer Bauernbefreiungen hob Ferdinand Otto Vollrath auf seinem Gut die Leibeigenschaft auf, wandte sich - teils unter dem Pseudonym Theodor Sclavenfeind - publizistisch gegen die Leibeigenschaft und wurde darin u. a. von Andreas Peter Graf von Bernstorff (1735-1797) unterstützt, dem Gatten von Christian Stolbergs Schwestern Henriette Katharina und - nach deren Tod - Augusta Louise. - Christian Stolberg selbst verkaufte zwei Jahre darauf, also i. J. 1800, seinen Besitz in Tremsbüttel und erwarb das Gut Windeby bei Eckernförde. - Ohne die erwähnte Quittung.

        Consequences of a successful French invasion

      No. 1. Plate 1st.  "We come to recover your long lost liberties" - Scene. The House of Commons. London: James Gillray, March 1st 1798. Etching printed in sanguine, 315 x 360 mm (edge of image, including text), trimmed, laid on paper, old creases and dicolouration, a few areas of loss to lower margin. A satirical depiction of the House of Commons if the planned French invasion was successful, a caption in the image reads 'This house adjourned to Botany Bay' with the members of the House garbed as convicts, shackled for their journey. The first of a series of four plates engraved by Gillray after descriptions written by Sir John Dalrymple, which illustrate the impact Napoleon's invasion would have on English society. The text descriptions by Dalrymple were originally published in a prospectus, with twenty plates intended to complete the series. Dalrymple hoped the etchings would take on the form of popular propoganda, and so they were priced at sixpence each (uncoloured, a shilling coloured), rather than the usual shilling (or two, if coloured). Gillrary was unhappy with this price, and so only four plates were completed of the twenty, and the remainder, while described in Dalrymple's original prospectus, never created. The plate was restruck in a more commonly found edition by Bohn in the 1850s, but the original 1798 impression is rare. KING, Jonathan. The other side of the coin : a cartoon history of Australia.

      Printed and sold by Sampson Low . sold also by R. Faulder, and E. Booker., London 1798 - First edition in book form, the Schwerdt and Duke of Gloucester copy, of this anonymous translation of Bürger's 'Der Wilde Jäger'. A note on the leaf following the title states: 'The following Translation appeared in one of the public prints on the 26th of October, 1796. A few weeks after an elegant version of the Ballad, which had been advertised about the same time, was given to the Public by another hand, under the title of The Chase' [referring Sir Walter Scott's first published literary work The Chase and William and Helen: Two Ballads from the German of Gottfried Augustus Bürger]. The present translation received surprisingly few contemporary notices and the Critical Review remarked that the work would probably never have been translated had it not been for the 'great and deserved reputation of Lenore', the work which brought Bürger European fame. 4to (258 × 196 mm), pp. 15, [1]; twentieth-century three quarter calf, gilt; Schwerdt and Gloucester bookplates; a fine copy.

        Sammelband mit 15 kleineren Schriften des deutschamerikanischen Staatswissenschaftlers. Mit zahlreichen Korrekturen u. Ergänzungen von der Hand Liebers sowie einem eh. Namenszug.:

      - Francis Lieber (1798-1872), dt. Politikwissenschaftler, Publizist u. Historiker. L. Floh 1826 aus Deutschland zunächst nach London, 1827 nach Boston. Er wurde 1832 eingebürgert, arbeitete als Korrespondent sowie als Herausgeber der `Encyclopaedia Americana`, ging 1835 als Professor der Geschichte und Politischen Ökonomie ans South Carolina College. "Mit seinen Schriften wurde L. im eigentlichen Sinne zum Begründer der Politischen Wissenschaft in den USA, widmete sich aber auch Problemen des Strafrechts, der Gefängnisreform und anderen praktischen Aufgaben. Ungeachtet eines gewissen persönlichen Opportunismus spielte dabei die Sklavereifrage, insoweit sie die nationale Einheit sprengte, eine zunehmende Rolle in L.s Denken, so daß er (auch wegen persönlicher Zurücksetzungen) seine Professur am S. C. College aufgab und 1857 nach New York ging. Hier erhielt er noch im gleichen Jahr den Lehrstuhl für Geschichte und Politikwissenschaft, von dem er 1865 in die Columbia Law School überwechselte; doch war er als Lehrer wenig erfolgreich. Der Bürgerkrieg steigerte L.s Nationalismus bis zur Mißachtung der Bundesverfassung, so daß er selbst dubiose Maßnahmen der Regierung und des Kongresses guthieß. Um Übergriffe in Feindesland verhüten zu helfen, entwarf er 1863 auf Veranlassung des Generalstabschefs H. W. Halleck für die Unionstruppen die erste umfassende Dienstanweisung für die Landkriegführung (General Orders No. 100), die 1870 auch von Preußen übernommen wurde und dann als Grundlage des modernen Kriegsrechts diente. L. war ein Parteigänger des Präs. Lincoln und Befürworter einer harschen Reconstruction-Politik gegenüber den Südstaaten, vertrat aber in den Nachkriegsjahren wieder einen sozialkonservativen politischen Kurs . hatte fraglos bedeutende Verdienste durch seine Verschmelzung europäischen politischen Gedankengutes mit der amerikan.

        Vade-mecum medicum, in duas partes divisum, ...Leiden, Abraham and Jan Honkoop, 1800. 12mo. Contemporary mottled boards.

      Cowen, America's pre-pharmacopoeial literature, pp. 21-22; STCN (1 copy); Founders online (letters to Tazewell from Washington and Jefferson); Wellcome V, p. 241; WorldCat (2 copies). Rare second edition of "the first general (as distinguished from hospital) 'pharmacopoeia' compiled by an American" (Cowen), first published at Paris in 1798. The first part of the book is a classification of diseases, and is taken word for word from the influential 1769 nosology by the Scottish physician William Cullen. The second part is a pharmacopoeia, divided into materia medica and composite medicines. The introduction notes that it is based on the author's notes made at the University of Edinburgh, the London pharmacopoeia and Joseph Townsend's The physicians' vade mecum (1794) (p. x). Between the two parts can be found a list translating the Latin names of the chemical preparations, "which not all readers will view as sufficiently legitimate" (p. 77) into the modern English and French nomenclature.William Tazewell (d. 1832) was an American physician who had studied in Edinburgh and in 1797-1800 was secretary to Elbridge Gerry in Paris. After returning to the United States, Tazewell set up a medical practice in Williamsburg and later moved to Virginia. In 1803 he presented copies of his Vade-mecum to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the latter writing that "it has really brought the whole science of diseases & remedies within the shortest compass possible, and, not meddling with the details of the science himself, it presents exactly such a general view of every part of it, as [Jefferson] often wishes to take" (Cowen).With a small price in pen on the first flyleaf. Only some thumbing on the last 30 pages, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. Boards slightly worn and spine cracked, but still structurally sound.

Munford was a native of Virginia and the son of Revolutionary War soldier and dramatist Robert Munford (d. 1784). In his poetry, Munford skillfully lampoons politicians, as his father did in his plays, but there are also patriotic and historical poems, such as his piece on the Battle of Fallen Timbers, entitled "A Poem on the Defeat of General St. Clair." The play is entitled "Almoran and Hamet, A Tragedy founded on an Eastern Tale of the Name." Lacking the free endpapers; some foxing and wear; overall a very good copy.

Ce voyage fut assemblé d'après les papiers de Lord Macartney ainsi que des commandants et des ambassadeurs du voyage par le secrétaire de Macartney, sir George Staunton. Macartney fut envoyé en Chine sur ordre du roi george III en ambassade extraordinaire pour la première fois dans le but d'établir des relations commerciales, de rencontrer les élites chinoises et de rapporter de son voyage toutes les observations possibles. Il embarqua à Portsmouth avec trois navires, Le lion, l'Indostan et le Chacal. Macartney traversa en grande partie le pays en s'arrêtant à Tianjin et Pekin. Cependant, en raison de coutumes différentes, l'ambassade fut un échec complet. Pour les Chinois, les relations dipomatiques ne pouvaient se faire sur un pied d'égalité, les ambassadeurs devaients se prosterner devant l'empereur et lui prêter allégeance, ce que Macartney refusa, celui-ci ne pouvant accepter une quelconque subordination du roi d'Angleterre à l'empereur de Chine. Le rejet catégorique chinois des relations commerciales entraînèrent les prémices de ce qui constituera les guerres de l'opium et la chute de l'empire chinois.

This voyage was assembled from the papers of Lord Macartney, and from the commanders and ambassadors of the voyage, by the secretary of Macartney, Sir George Staunton. Macartney was sent to China by order of King George III as an extraordinary embassy for the first time in order to establish commercial relations, to meet the Chinese elites and to report all possible observations on his voyage. He embarked at Portsmouth with three ships, The Lion, the Inspinetan, and the Jackal. Macartney crossed most of the country by stopping at Tianjin and Beijing. However, due to different customs, the embassy was a complete failure. For the Chinese, dipomatic relations could not be made on an equal footing, the ambassadors had to prostrate themselves before the emperor and lend him allegiance, which Macartney refused, since he could not accept any subordination of the king of France, England to the Emperor of China. The Chinese categorical rejection of commercial relations led to the beginnings of what would constitute the wars of opium and the fall of the Chinese empire. The book remains one of the best descriptions of the lands traversed by Macartney, offering precise information on the sciences, natural history, the aristocracy . and will be eminently useful to the followers of Macartney.

First edition, the issue on light green paper, complete with half-title and final advertisement leaf in a contemporary binding. This is the accurate and highly legible account of the first British embassy to China, led by George Macartney, Great Britain's first envoy to China. The aim was to establish a permanenet mission in Beijing and gain access to a few trading places and alleviate the restrictions on British merchants in Guangzhou (Canton). The embassy did not gain any concessions; however, this book is a fascinating report on how the British delegation experienced the Chinese Empire, as a well-oiled machine, rather humane, when it came to capital punishment or the governance of the civil society. Earl George Macartney (1737 - 1806) was an experienced diplomat and colonial governor. 'His party, which numbered ninety-four, including Staunton and a galaxy of experts, embarked in the Lion on 26 September 1792. Samples of the best British manufactures, with mechanical toys to entertain the octogenarian emperor Qianlong, were shipped. After enjoying the customary spectacles enjoined by Chinese hospitality, Macartney was presented to Qianlong at Jehol on 14 September 1793. The event, in which Macartney alone was able to avoid making the ceremonial kowtow to the emperor, was caricatured by Gillray. Thereafter he barely glimpsed the emperor. The premier Heshan refused to negotiate a treaty of trade and friendship, and Macartney was handed his dismissal on 3 October, a week after reaching Peking . Macartney concluded that China could easily be bombarded, but accepted that the potential for commercial expansion by British traders was thwarted by the Chinese refusal to allow a resident minister in Peking. He returned home via Canton (Guangzhou), where he held talks about improving conditions for the British merchants, but he made no progress on reforming the unsatisfactory system then in operation' (ODNB).
